Covid Catch-Up Premium

 

Covid Catch-up Premium

The Government have announced additional funding to ‘catch-up’ any students detrimentally affected by Academy closures and the impact of Covid-19. The focus will be on catching up on lost teaching and ensuring students are in line with curriculum expectations and make progress in line with Academy targets.

The proposed Covid catch-up budget has been analysed and signed off by the Academy’s Governing body and its impact will be monitored and reviewed throughout the year by the Governing Body and Executive Principal.

Pupil Premium (PP)

An Academy Governor is responsible for monitoring the Pupil Premium Strategy. She visits the Academy each term and receives an update on the impact of funding. She also meets with children and the Faculty Director in charge of PP and producing a report and feedback for the wider Governing Body.  

Attendance is monitored weekly and the attendance team produce a weekly report that is discussed at the Academy Leadership Group meeting.  Academic performance is further monitored each term and impact reports are produced and shared with the Governing Body. Attendance at Enrichment activities, Academic Lectures and during LRC sessions is monitored weekly to ensure that PP students are benefiting from the extended curriculum, as much as those who are not PP.

A PP strategy review takes place between September and October, of each academic year.

The Executive Principal holds the budget for PP and authorises all expenditure from PP funding. PP funding is currently targeted at three aspects of student development; teaching and learning, attendance and behaviour.

16-19 Tuition Funding

The Department of Education announced funding to support students whose learning was disrupted as a result of the COVID pandemic. This 16-19 Tuition Fund is available to all 16 to 19 providers including Harris Girls’ Academy Bromley and is ring-fenced for 16 to 19 small group tuition only.  For Harris Girls’ Academy Bromley this amount is £2,244 for the academic year 2020/21.

The allocated £2,244 funding shall be used to support small group tuition for 16 to 19 students in English, Maths, and other courses where learning has been disrupted. The guidance indicates that the supported students must be on a 16 to 19 study programme and have not achieved grade 5 or above in GCSE Maths and/or English by age 16. The subjects covered in the small group tuition will not be limited to English and Maths but will be identified according to need and existing programmes.

Harris Girls’ Academy Bromley commits to using the tuition funding it has been given to mitigate against the impact of the pandemic on our students. Sessions will have between three to five students and will be above and beyond normal timetabled hours. Students will be prioritised for small group tuition based on the guidance released by the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA).

The full guidance can be accessed here

Support sessions will be prioritised for the following students:

  • Those with an Education, Health and Care (EHC) Plan
  • Those who have a grade 4 or below in GCSE Maths and/or English

Examples of some of the Tuition Support on offer will include:

  • GCSE exam re-sit preparation
  • Functional skills assessment preparation
  • Bespoke subject support/catch-up

Tuition Support offered will be based on an individual needs assessment, the identification of an individual starting point, clear learning goals, expectations and outcomes.

Our commitment

Harris Girls’ Academy Bromley is committed to ensuring the tuition fund is used in accordance with the Government’s guidance on the 16 to 19 tuition fund by:

  • producing this statement setting out how the fund will be used to support the most disadvantaged students
  • publishing this guidance on the Academy website
  • recording the use of the fund, including references to individual students who receive support, the needs of those students, the number of hours of tuition delivered and retain evidence of the tuition provided
  • deliver the extra tuition and spend the allocated funds in the academic year 2020/21
  • notify the Education Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) of any underspend from the Fund for it to be reclaimed
